  1. Sure but Boeser's rookie season was not under Green but WD and he even sit him out first two games. They did not put Hughes on PP1 early part of 2019/20 season so Green is kind of afraid of putting rookies over vets unless they blow the vets out of waters in the training camp. Most rookies is not like that, unfortunately. Petey was the exception to the rule. WD did not play Horvat either in his rookie season.
  2. Just one thing to mention: Green should know that continuing to slot in plugs for games over Podz will cost him the job. Plugs will not save his job and if Green is replaced and play Podz and the team would play much better under a new coach will ensure that Green will not have a NHL head coach job for a long time, 10-20 years under the road and the gambler is too great and I think he knows it. It is better to try Podz and play him according and lose his job and other GM will see that Green is not afraid of play8ing his own rookes and willingly to get more skilled players in the line-up over plugs unless there's not enough players that are not ready. Green will not be out of job for long if he plays rookies over plugs and I do not mind sitting out rookies just to rest his body and observe the game from above once in a while. It is of my belief that any rookies on teh team should not play more than 60 games and gradually increase his workload in next few seasons. I think that Podz is ready for the NHL and there is consensus that Podz is a NHLer. All rookies from college and Junior do not play 82 games and is used to playing 30 -60 games seasons.
  3. No, they needs to have at least 3 or 4 set plays with lots of movement, not just the puck but positional to give PK a different look and catch at least one overaggressive PK out of position for even more options to score. With this stationary PP, even one over-aggressive PK overcommit to him, three other PK still stay on their position knowing where Canucks are.

  7. PP will be clicking if coaches make their adjustment and stop rely on Petey for one-timer. It is not working and let mix it up, shoot from anywhere, some movements, not just the puck movement but positional movement as well, etc. If you cannot move for one-minute then you shouldn't get extra minutes on PP sand send fresh bodies out there for 2nd half of PP.
  8. Miller tried to be a goalie on that goal there.. I do not think he is playing well so far this year, play died with him. Hopefully he can sort this one out so I'd like to see some adjustment to PP with Miller not playing with Petterson. Put OEL on top PP unit and I'd be ok with it.
  9. I have seen enough from last two years that Green relies on dump and chase to waste time and doing nothing to sustain the offense and powerplay and defensive game is that bad and I have yet to see a Canucks game but what I have gathered so far is that nothing changes even with new players on the team. Maybe it's time to adjust the system or shake things up on coaching level. I do not get why Green is playing like he is afraid of losing his job by dumb decisions on player management. Benning provided Green everything he needed and Green doesn't use them properly. The biggest part is Baumer still being on this team.as an assistant coach. He was supposed to be let go as from last season but I'm thinking Green is pulling for him at expense of well-being of the team when it became clear that he is not fit in this team. .
  10. It does not have to be offensive side of game for as long as he does his job defensively as a 3C/4C role. His only weakness is faceoff side of thing as it is well known then and we should not be surprised by it. Even if they lose the faceoff, the only thing it matters is not allowing goals against right after the faceoff.
  11. This year schedule is not that bad but I'm guessing that the schedule on the road is more related to Seattle's home arena time to finish up with their construction in case of unforeseen delays so that is why they are on the road to start the season. They also give the other teams road schedule to the west coast a similar homestand schedule with Seattle to Vancouver or Vancouver to Seattle road trip for Central division and Eastern teams involved. This is my only guess on why they start out on the road. So I'm assuming that next season will be much better season opening schedule by giving them more games at home to begin, maybe back to back games against each other to start similar to Montreal-Toronto season opener every year, it seem or save the Canucks- Seattle rivalry games in middle of the season if they ever needed a break from long travel. I do not mind a 6-games road trip if it involves with Seattle at the end because of first game back home effect so it would feel like a home game for Canucks on their own time zone at the end with short flight home after the game rather than 5-6 hours flight time straight from the East coast for their first game back home. I'd rather them having their full energy when coming home with last stop in Seattle with 50/50 chance of losing at home to increase their chance of winning the game at home by huge margin. Seattle is going through 5 game road trip so their first game home will be on the same par with the Canucks for even playing field. We'll see how it works out for the Canucks. I can see the only way for the Canucks or Seattle to have some kind of break in travel if they increase their divisional games from 4 games to 6 games and scrap the conference format or go with 4-team divisions with 2 divisions in Pacific Conference and split them from North and South and using 6-4-2 schedule matrix format. this will comes out a perfect 82 game schedule. If the league ever decide to go with 8 divisions with no conference, it will be perfect with 8 games against the same division then 2 games for rest of the league This will reduce the Canucks road schedule by a large margin. Until the League scrap the East/West conference format which I hate so much that forced the Canucks with very high mileage, we cannot do anything about their travel.. Imagine with 8 games against Seattle, Calgary, and Edmonton, it will reduce their travel by 10 thousands of miles.
  12. Possible move if nobody takes Harmonic is either, mutual termination of the contract by failure to show up as breach of contract to free up some cap space or send him to minors to catch up with conditional assignments for as long as possible whenever he decides to return.
  13. I think that putting OEL and Hughes for PP1 is better than having 4 forward and 1 D. It also gives us different looks with both talents on D better than just 4F and 1 D. You'd want to save the 3rd and 4th line with lots of energy rather than having 1/3 being tired becuase they played the PP with both PP lines being 4 F and 1 D and D do not get their feel with the puck for 2 whole minutes and by the time even strength play returns and we do not do well because our D is out of rhythm and get burnt because of that.
  14. I'd rather them experimenting things during pre-season, rather than trying new things during a regular season games. I think that they'll be fine when they start the season. You are missing the point of pre-season, most players do not play that hard in these games. They are slowly gradually putting in some intensity in regular season games, not preseason. I do not really care about win/lose record. I remember we did well a good pre-season record with 6-2, something like that and we didn't do start out well in that season and missed the playoffs. Pre-season is meaningless.
